Yes, radiant and round moissy. I had it made to look similar to Meghan markle’s ring as I love hers!

i haven’t been able to wear my wedding set since the birth of my 2nd (gotta lose about 15lbs to get back to prebaby and preIVF meds weight).  my rings are a bit snug and every time i use hand sanitizer, i get a rash under my ring finger. 

i’ve been wearing my birthstone ring that my grandmother gave me when i was 10, and another gold band that i found in my father’s jewelry box after he passed away.  i’m thinking it might have been his mother’s wedding band.

pic 1 is my stand in. pic 2 is my wedding set.

ajillity81 :  That birthstone ring is so gorgeous!! I’m not sure if you’ve ever seen the show Once Upon A Time, but it immediately reminded me of Snow White’s engagement ring 😛 regardless, it’s beautiful!

I have a few.. I’m a jeweller with a tiny ring obsession and a wife who spoils me!

These are my favourite sets: yellow gold pear diamond cluster with white gold diamond eternity band, white gold moissanite solitaire with white and rose gold eternity bands, rose gold morganite with diamond halo with rose gold eternity band, white gold moissanite solitaire with white gold band, and my absolute favourite is my white gold sapphire and diamond wedding band! (Im sorry the photos are so obnoxiously big!) 

You all have gorgeous sets, by the way! I love seeing the variety of styles here.

I have two anniversary rings I usually wear. One is diamonds set in platinum, and the other is a colored gemstone set in rose gold. I’ve been wearing the gemstone ring the most lately because it is newer. And I am a little bit obsessed with it — ha, ha! Both of my anniversary rings are wider, heavier settings. So when the weather is hot or my fingers are particularly swollen, I switch back to my engagement ring with a band. I like it for the hot weather months because it is a smaller and lighter setting.

I have a few bands that I wear with it: a 14K scrollwork band in yellow gold; a flush-set diamond band in platinum; a plain 3mm band in 14K yellow gold; and a diamond and sapphire band in white gold. I probably wear the diamond and sapphire band most often, as it is almost as sentimental to me as my original wedding band (which was a stand-alone band).

During Lent, I usually give up wearing my diamonds and gemstones. I have a silver and yellow gold “lover’s knot” ring that I wear during that time.

I almost always wear my original set. Even to the beach, outdoors, traveling, etc. 

The only time I wear a stand in is if I’m swimming in the ocean or really getting dirty or something. In that case, I just switch my right hand ring to my left hand 🙂 

It’s just a turquoise set in sterling silver.

blasian84 :  Thanks so much for your kind words! I’m always happy to share lots of pictures — ha, ha!

Yellow gold scrollwork band:

Plain 3mm yellow gold band:

Platinum band with flush-set diamonds.

And this is my diamond and sapphire band set in white gold.

Oh! And this is my original wedding band, which is a mix of white and yellow gold. It was a stand-alone band, but i occasionally wear it with my engagement ring. Very occasionally.

This is my right hand set, 1st anniversary band and 30th birthday gift, 3 stone ring. Sometimes I wear the band with my wedding band.

Here’s a picture of my wedding band, 1st anniversary and newest 20th anniversary pave

And when i don’t want to wear all the bling I wear the wedding band, and yellow gold band.
